Books Reviewed: March 2015
Posted April 24, 2015on:
I thought I had this done earlier, but I checked, and it turned out it was in draft form in the blog’s cue. I think I got interrupted the first time I was typing it, and then sort of forgot. Anyhow, here it is at last. This is the list of books I reviewed at The Itinerant Librarian for March 2015. Feel free to check them out. If you read any of them, feel free to comment.
- I started the month with a trip to the world of Judge Dredd with Judge Dredd: Anderson, Psi Division.
- I reviewed the second book I read for the Dean’s Faculty Book Reading Group here at the college. The book is That’s So Gay! The book is about microaggressions in and around the LGBTQIA community.
- I went back to Cybertron with the Transformers in Transformers: Primacy.
- Fans of The X-Files will probably like this one. We get a modern case that may have a connection to the very early days of the FBI and the formation of the X-Files. The comic is X-Files: Year Zero.
- I also reviewed Meka, “where civilization is defended by giant, humanoid vehicles known as ‘Meka. . . . ‘”
- You know all those dishes you read about in works of literature? Well, this author set out to recreate some of them, and she took pictures too. The book is Fictitious Dishes.
- I read some Star Wars with the graphic novel Darth Vader and the Ninth Assassin. I am not holding too much hope for that new movie that is getting all the hype, so I will probably spend more time reading Star Wars books.
- If you like road trips, and you like eating in unique places (think non-chain local) when you travel, then Two for the Road may be for you.
- I review the second volume of this great series about the three Adolfs. The book this time is Adolf Volume 2: An Exile in Japan. If you want to see World War II from a very different perspective, this series is for you. Manga readers will enjoy it as well.
- If you remember the show, The Six Million Dollar Man, this comic may be for you. And if you were too young to see the show, this comic will put you right in it. The book is The Six Million Dollar Man: Season 6. Yes, it is set right after the last season on television.
- Very often, film and other properties get a “manga treatment.” I recently discovered that the character of Spawn has gotten the manga treatment too. So, this month I reviewed Spawn: Shadows of Spawn, Volume 1. If the only way you know Spawn is from the movie a few years back, you may consider giving this a chance.
- And finally for March, I know not everybody has the time to read the classics. Or maybe you do not want to read them, but you at least have to pretend you did. So, for those folks, maybe 90 Classic Books for People in a Hurry would be a good choice.
